Finished one painting, to be completely revealed later, and a great start on two more in just a few hours! Finished watercolor preparation and started painting a group illustration that features caricatures of a family involved in a football game. Another was penciling, preping and adding watercolor to a caricature of a child with their pet dog and video games and psychiatry! The third has to remain a mystery illustration including a caricature of a friend

Now on to home!

What a father sets aside – March 2nd, 2016

by on Mar.02, 2016, under Cartooning

2016-0302-ArtPerSmithSr

Interesting what a father sets aside. Found a few decades of my artwork in a box of his. Newspaper art, comics strips, advertising pieces, comic books and personal artwork.

Spent weekend moving my father’s things to my house. Great thanks to brother Jeff Smith, his friend Steve and old pal James Goddard for the enormous amount of help! James even found a 40th birthday comic book I had done for him and his twin brother.

#DailyInks #15 – Inking an Octopus!

This project dropped in as I drove to Lakeland Saturday afternoon and needed by Sunday night. Penciling and inking is easy. Coloring is the time eater.

This was inked with a Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen – Hard and a PITT medium pen.

#DailyInks #12 – Inking a College Professor – November 12th, 2015

by on Nov.12, 2015, under Cartooning, Editorials

2015-1112-DailyInks-MelissaClick

Thought I’d add a small bit of an editorial cartoon i did tonight. This is the now infamous Melissa Click of the University of Missouri. I’m posting this involving producing the art and not the politics.

Inked with a Kuretake brush, she was easy to draw. Coloring even easier. Drawing so many family members who have red, curly hair over the decades, this was easy! So, I include the color version used in the final cartoon, too.

If you would like to see the whole cartoon, let me know below or in a private message and I’ll send you over to my editorial cartoon Facebook page. I’ve kept it kinda quiet, but you can join in, if you would like.
